Block Party


Extension uses blocks to teach parents and caregivers of young children how block play can be a fun and educational learning experience. The blocks are currently stored in two locations:

  1. Racine County in Burlington
  2. Marquette County in Montello

Extension educators are invited to use the blocks for local community events. The block collection includes: keva planks, unit blocks, cube blocks, foam blocks, and cardboard blocks, a block party banner, and five informational boards.

How to reserve the blocks

  1. To reserve the blocks, contact Sarah Hawks at (262) 767-2916 or email
